Hello

You should enter in BIOS and see if is showing there , if not that means some cables are not placed well and you must reconnect them .
IF is showing that means is your operating system and you need a reinstall.
Also i don't know what are you using the external hdd for but i suggest if you use it for backup to find another method like online backup , because hdd are so unstable.
A good free software that has online storage aswell is http://www.dmailer.com/dmailer-backup.html , test it and see what you think.
